Shimmy-shimmy boom-boom stunners, part II of II

Summer’s on her sunshiny way, café patrons!

That means a Summer Deluxe Edition of the Multichrome Comparison Library is in short order.

Put on a hat + sunglasses, grab your parasol + an outdoor table with a refreshing beverage of your choice, and relax + enjoy these little bottles as much as I delighted in gathering + posing them for you 🙂

Trusty Brit trio

Caviar base + top coats, former round bottles purchased at a deep discount from the bargain bin at Sephora a couple of years ago

Bon Boy-age.

Yeah. That’s exactly what I said five times in succession, after putting on, taking off … Five. Times. In. A. Row.

Not sure if it was the captain of the ship or the waters, but this endeavour was no pleasure cruise.

Au contraire, a waste of a perfectly good afternoon.

At least I managed to snap a couple of photos amid the frustration.

1500 Bon Boy-age
1501 Perfect Mate
1502 At the Helm
1503 Pass-port to Sail
1504 Anchor Down
1505 Stripes & Sails

All in One (in my case, five). By the time I was done, the level went down to below the “all in one” line. 😕

I tried Pass-port to Sail as a base for the other five colours to be brushed onto horizontally, a yarn manicure sans yarn.

PtS was streaky at one coat, impossible at two.

Although my efforts ended up as an hours-long epic fail, I still have hope for my initial idea.

Sigh. These colours are just so pretty in the bottle …

Let’s leave OPI out of it

Warm peachy nude and peachy-brown neutrals are not my usual jam; they wreak havoc with my uneven pallor.

For some reason, I want them on my nails anyway … but not enough to trek to the booby trap into which my teenaged son has converted the varnish warehouse. That’s where OPI Feeling Frisco and Samoan Sand are currently residing.

Hence the title of this post 🙂

Chanel 633 Intention has a very subtle warm shimmer, none too visible here …

Chanel 633 Intention was “intended” for the Asian market only, or so I’ve heard. That’s why I snatched it up when I found it available in the U.S. for a time.
